We’re still working hard removing plastic at Sand Hill Farm. In the lower fields, we are almost done removing sheet plastic. The staff is also working on removing irrigation pipes and working on the irrigation system. In the upper fields we are removing chopped-up sheet plastic, but all the fields been disked and had their gullies filled.
In the photo above Kevin Contreras, ESF’s Land Acquisitions Coordinator, is standing in front of a huge pile of old sheet plastic and drip irrigation line removed from an old dumpsite. The clean-up of this dumpsite is about one-half completed, but there are still 2 more dumpsites on the property.
